    I visualization how Tracks would look like in the shattered glass universe and this is what I saw. So here is Tracks painted to shattered glass-like colors. He is painted purple and given green highlights. His G1 hood flame is also mirrored to completed the evil look.

    leaving out the fact that I find the "Shatterd Glass" concept distasteful and boring, this is some fine work. If it were not for the green I would call this a perfect repaint.

    Sweet! My only minor suggestion would be to make his face a high contrast color, like his original's red face. Light blue maybe? Regardless...awesome.

    I have mixed feelings about this. on one hand i love it. Awesome colors and the decals are top. However on the other hand it screams Prime in car mode. Which is sad as Tracks is one of my favorites and i was going to do my SG tracks in purple as well. I might go a darker purple, but now I am not sure. Again killer paint job and no offense. ;)

    I agree, it's very nicely done, but I think you'd be more successful if you were to cut around the flame.

    I agree with cutting to the outlines of the flame. Also to cut off the black area around the autobot sigil too. I found that slightly distracting.

    To break the monochromy of black and purple, I was thinking a lighter, (silvery?) grey helmet to mirror the original white. A light blue face might work too.

    That being said, sweet work! I dig it.

    Pretty cool. Now I'm wondering what an evil Thurston Howell III would sound like.

    Outside of how I imagine SG Tracks would look more like Road Rage, it's not bad.

    Perfect paint job. But decals are so funky , they are either dead on perfect or they can be a bit distracting. I think trimming closer would have made it dead on. Still, kick ass concept and paint job! :thumb

    The paint is very well done. The only thing I agree with others is that the face needs to stand out like the original Tracks. Either the light blue that was suggested or even white. Overall, Killer job.
